Snapshot of Canyon Bijela hiking tour
The path follows the riverbed up the walls of the canyon, to a maximum height of 300metres. We go through breathtaking forests and meadows, on the right side of the canyon towards the cave. Then we come across a noteworthy cliff wall, a sort of natural amphitheatre, called Kravlje Pecine. A little further and a surprise awaits; the entrance of the cave where the Bijela river lies.
The size of this place – varying width, up one and a half metres, height of 5-7 metres and depth approx. 100 metres –resembles a cave, with an open canopy allowing beautiful rays of light that dance on the river surface creating the most magical scene. At the end of the cave is the waterfall of the Bijela river, made even more attractive by the light penetrating from above.You will have the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful experience and have a relaxing swim in the midst of this untouched natural phenomenon.
The area is also known for its land turtles, beautiful snakes and lizards. Bijela is a wild canyon hidden from the main road which few people ever visit. This makes it a truly special place with exquisite views of Prenj, Bosnia’s Himalayas.
Our hike up the canyon ascends a little over 400 meters. It’s refreshing and most of the time leads us through thick beach wood and Bream forests. All along the trail we see remains of a settlement long gone, i.e. graveyard, an occasional abandoned old stone house, walls, and orchards.
We will have a break next to the river and mountain hut and depending on the weather you’ll have an excellent opportunity for a cold dip in Bijela. Here deep in the heart of the canyon we encounter rare species of pine and flowers. Be prepared for some bush walking, because you are in for a wild treat….. beautiful vertical rock faces towering 1,000 meters above us. Who knows we might even see wild goats and the occasional deer. This hike will take us about 6 hours, climbing not more than 300 meters. We return the same way we came slowly pulling ourselves out of this mystical canyon and towards a realization that Bosnia and Herzegovina’s nature is just incredibly beautiful and unspoiled.

During Ottoman rule, Sarajevo was heralded as the “European Jerusalem”, as its invaluable contributions to civil engineering, industry, trade and architecture attracted people from various ethnic and religious backgrounds. Aesthetic beauty alongside scientific ingenuity made, and indeed makes, Sarajevo a hub for civilisation.
The Old Bridge Area of the Old City of Mostar is a place of memory to its multicultural background. Mostar is known as a melting pot of cultures and religions, where east meets west and north meets south. It is a city where a traveler from the north feels the first dashes of Mediterranean air imbued with scents of citrus and sea, and a traveler from the south gets a first glimpse of the continent beyond.
